Tasting Notes

JS96

A big, rich wine but there's lots of brightness and beauty at the same time. Shows licorice and asphalt. Full body with chewy tannins and a long finish. Terracotta, Tuscan dust and spice; balsamic too. This needs three to five years to soften. Intense finish.

WS94

This rich, bright red displays plum, blackberry, boysenberry, leather and spice notes, allied to a dense structure. Remains balanced and juicy through the finish and is built for the long haul. Cabernet Sauvignon, Sangiovese and Cabernet Franc. Best from 2018 through 2033.

The Winery

Solaia

For 26 generations, the Antinori family has been producing exquisite juice beginning in 1385 when Giovani di Piero Antinori joined the Florentine Guild of Vintners. The family name did not become globally known until Piero Antinori began a new winemaking style in the 1970s, when he decided to ignore traditional classification and highlight the versatility of Sangiovese. This rouge approach inspired him to replace the white grapes in the customary Chianti blend with Bordeaux varietals. It not only changed the flavor profile, but increased the longevity of the wines. His first effort was Tignanello and comprised of 80% Sangiovese, 15% Cabernet Sauvignon and 5% Cabernet Franc. Its successors are Solaia and Guada al Tasso. Today the Super Tuscan movement is known for producing some of the highest quality wines in the world. Vintages to look out for: 1971, 1978, 1982, 1985, 1986, 1988, 1990, 1995, 1996, 1997, 2001, 2003, 2004, 2006, 2007.
